Game streaming comes with serious hardware demands. Not only do you need enough power to run your games at a high quality, but you need enough brawn left over to handle the video compression, combine it with your camera feed, maintain the stream, and handle any extra visual flair you want to add on top. With the CORSAIR VOYAGER a1600, you get all that and more in a design that’s ready for you to take your streaming setup anywhere you like.
The CORSAIR VOYAGER a1600 is just 2.4kg (5.29 pounds), but it packs in hardware like you wouldn’t believe. The AMD Ryzen 7 6800HS or Ryzen 9 6900HS are both ready to blitz through games at high speed, especially when paired with the Radeon RX 6800M GPU that’s on par with RTX 3070 Ti and RTX 3080 in gaming performance. As both of these AMD processors are 8-core/16-thread chips, there’s plenty of graphics muscle to go around for games and streams at the same time. Cutting edge Wi-Fi 6E onboard will also help you keep your upload speeds topped out and stable even over a wireless connection.
While that powerful hardware is making your stream beautiful for viewers, the display on the CORSAIR VOYAGER a1600 will make sure your games look beautiful, too. The laptop’s 16-inch display stays sharp with a 2,560×1,600 resolution. The display tops out at a staggering 240Hz refresh rate, and CORSAIR has included a feature you don’t often find on laptops: FreeSync Premium. This helps ensure you never have to see torn frames.

As if the visual appeal of the monitor wasn’t enough, CORSAIR’s design for the VOYAGER a1600 drips with quality. You’ll get all the fun of full RGB on the keyboard, which is all you need for gaming. Cherry MX Ultra Low Profile mechanical switches provide dependable performance.
Below the display is the S-key macro bar, a special row of extra buttons delivering extra streaming capabilities to your fingertips. With Elgato Stream Deck integrations for the S-key macro bar, you can program all sorts of handy macros. Switch scenes on the fly, launch programs with a single tap, or perform any command available in the Elgato actions store.
CORSAIR also crams in powerful, Dolby-optimized speakers, a 1080p webcam and 4-mic array with noise cancellation you can use for your streams, and plenty of USB ports for connecting extra peripherals, hubs—you name it.
All of this is housed in a robust aluminum shell and kept humming smoothly by a vapor chamber cooling system for a streaming setup that’s cool and compact in equal measure. To help ensure you’re always ready to game, Corsair provides a comprehensive on-year warranty and 24/7 support for the lifetime of the device.
